#### Ferroelectrics UK 2001

Maney Publishing 2002; US$ 160.00This book is a compilation of the proceedings from Ferroelectrics UK 2001. This annual meeting is designed to bring together industrial and academic researchers and developers in the UK so that they can exchange knowledge and expertise. The papers deal with a broad range of topics covering the physics, chemistry and materials science/engineering of... more...

#### The Theoretical Practices of Physics

OUP Oxford 2009; US$ 36.99R.I.G Hughes presents eight philosophical essays on the theoretical practices of physics. The first two essays examine these practices in physicists' treatises and journal articles, and cast the philosopher of science in the role of critic. This premise guides the following essays, which deal with central concerns in philosophy and physics. more...

#### Demystifying Electromagnetic Equations

SPIE 2001; US$ 71.00In classical Newtonian mechanics, equations and formulas never change form. The same cannot be said about equations and formulas of electromagnetic theory, which often change form when converted from one system of units to another. Douglas Cohen provides exactly what the technical professional needs: a thorough explanation of how to convert electromagnetic... more...

#### Electromagnetic Analysis Using Transmission Line Variables

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 110.00This book employs a relatively new method for solving electromagnetic problems, one which makes use of a transmission line matrix (TLM). The propagation space is imagined to be filled with this matrix. The propagating fields and physical properties are then mapped onto the matrix. Mathematically, the procedures are identical with the traditional numerical... more...

#### Selected Semiconductor Research

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 118.00This unique volume assembles the author's scientific and engineering achievements of the past three decades in the areas of: semiconductor physics and materials, including topics in deep level defects and band structures, CMOS devices, including the topics in device technology, CMOS device reliability, and nano CMOS device quantum modeling, and... more...

#### Are We There Yet? The Search for a Theory of Everything

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 21.00We live in exciting times. The frontiers of physics have been pushed to unprecedented horizons. The Holy Grail of fundamental physics research today is to find and describe a theory that explains, at least in principle, all physical phenomena, which in turns explains chemistry, biology and other material sciences. This, however, is not without controversy.... more...

#### Field, Force, Energy and Momentum in Classical Electrodynamics

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 89.00For the past 100 years physicists have debated the nature of the momentum of light inside material media. Hermann Minkowski, for example, asserts that within a transparent dielectric the momentum of a photon is the photon’s vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...

#### Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 55.00Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves is an outgrowth of several years of work. There have been no recent books on integral equation methods. There are books written on integral equations, but either they have been around for a while, or they were written by mathematicians. Much of the knowledge in integral equation methods... more...

#### Electromagnetic Scattering using the Iterative Multi-Region Technique

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00In this work, an iterative approach using the finite difference frequency domain method is presented to solve the problem of scattering from large-scale electromagnetic structures. The idea of the proposed iterative approach is to divide one computational domain into smaller subregions and solve each subregion separately. Then the subregion solutions... more...

#### Physical Systems

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 159.00This book offers a new philosophical interpretation of classical mechanics and the Special Theory of Relativity, in which motions of parts and wholes of physical systems are taken to be fundamental, prior to spacetime, material properties and laws of motion. more...
